Retailer and buying organization registration for the fourth annual Organic Produce Summit is now open on the event’s website. Qualified individuals from retail or buying organizations dealing directly with consumers are eligible for complimentary registration and accommodations for the July 10-11, 2019 event, to be held at Monterey Convention Center, Monterey, CA.
Following the success of the past three Organic Produce Summits, OPS 2019 will retain a similar format, including an informative series of educational sessions, keynote presentations and a sold out trade show floor, featuring 140 organic growers, shippers and processors from across North America. Additionally, retailers and buyers will have a hands on opportunity to tour the nation’s largest and most respected organic fresh produce organizations. Complete details of the field tour program will be announced in the coming weeks.
“We are thrilled with the tremendous feedback and response from the organic community the past three years and we’re looking to make OPS 2019 the best yet. We’re putting together a dynamic program that features impactful and relevant educational sessions touching on important industry issues and objectives, and a series of keynote presentations from leaders in the organic retail community,“ said Susan Canales, President of the Organic Produce Summit (pictured, top). “Our sold out trade show floor has been slightly enlarged to accommodate 10 more booths than last year, but we will retain the intimacy and energy our attendees are seeking. We’ll be releasing components of our program in the coming months and expect another outstanding event.”
General attendee registration for OPS 2019 will open in mid-January, 2019.
